Unclaimed load of marijuana found
March 31, 2005

Workers unloading a shipment of Mexican television stands and carts in an Otay Mesa warehouse discovered tons of marijuana mixed in, federal officials said yesterday.

Federal agents seized 15,433 pounds of pot yesterday valued at more than $4.5 million, said Lauren Mack, spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, one of two Department of Homeland Security agencies investigating the find.

"This is definitely a first," she said, "where a smuggler has lost his drug load."

Marijuana smugglers are regularly caught bringing tractor-trailer loads through the commercial lanes at the Otay Mesa border crossing, but typically as a result of tips and surveillance or because of drug-sniffing dogs.

In this case, a driver crossed the border without a problem and drove to a nearby warehouse about 3 p.m. Tuesday, where workers began unloading the television furniture from his 53-foot truck, Mack said.

"The marijuana had been wrapped in pharmaceutical boxes, Home Depot boxes and heavy duty garbage bags," she said.

Warehouse owners and the trucking company reported the find to federal agents, who interviewed the 32-year-old Mexican driver but had no cause to arrest him.

The truck is used by three Mexican companies, Mack said, and agents were investigating how the truck got past border inspectors.

"These smugglers made a mistake and somehow there was a communication breakdown between the smugglers as to where this marijuana was going to be unloaded," she said.

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus
